There, they've said what I only hinted at: the Cubs are on track to win 100 games this season, and their current record (81-50) is not only the best in baseball right now, but also the Cubs' best since 1969:
Perhaps it would be fitting for the Cubs to win 100 games on the 100th anniversary of their 1908 world championship.
After Monday's 12-3 romp over Pittsburgh at PNC Park, they were on pace to finish with that nice round number, a mark the Cubs haven't reached since 1935.
...[Yesterday] the Cubs moved to 31 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 1984 season.
If they win on Tuesday, the Cubs will be 32 over for the first time since, gulp, 1969.
Baseball. October. Wrigley Field. Mmmmmm.
